Half of the year is gone… terrible to think about it … and the long holiday is over. But as always, there is more to come. First I will do a week long trip to a part of the world that I never have been to before: South America. To be more specific, I will travel…

Walking tours and gums (Canada/USA 2019 – Day 8)

First full day in Seattle. I slept a little bit longer, but the US like their terrible thin blankets and a pillow that is too small. That makes me miss my bed. A quick shower and then to breakfast that is included in the hostel price. There are toast and bagels, with butter, jelly, cream…

Bonsoire Paris (Canada/USA 2019 – Day 2)

Why is it, that the day you can sleep in, you wake early. I didn’t manage that the last weeks at work. So I wake up early. The bed was good at the Radisson blu. Watching some YouTube before I go down to breakfast. A good breakfast buffet, nothing over the top, but a good…

I gave myself some tech presents..

Hohoho… Christmas is close and I decided to give myself two presents. After changing my camera gear to the Micro Four Thirds system I had one great travel lens. But I wanted something for just taking with me on a walk, not the full 24-120 mm spectrum. On the net I found some review about the Olympus…

Just two days again until  leave for another short trip out of the country. Destination this time is Oxford in the UK. Been to Oxford in 2003 and don’t remember a thing (was only for 2 hours). Unfortunately, I will not be able to do a lot of sightseeing this time either. The trip is…

Flight route confirmed

Finally my travel route is complete. Not an easy choice which airline to fly on which leg. But now all is in the box. As you can see, I ended up going to New Orleans. Of course in the middle of the Jazz and Heritage festival, when you neither get cheap accommodation or flights… This…

Holidays 2019 – 21.800 km in the air
